Connect.Me was founded with a simple mission: make the social web a better place for real people.

With over 1 billion of us online, finding people you can trust from babysitters to science bloggers has become a real problem. That's where Connect.Me comes in. We're developing powerful ways for you to discover trusted people in your extended networks and across the social web.

Connect.Me turns your existing social networks into your personal reputation network.

You can also control your online identity and reputation with your very own social business card. Unlike other tools, Connect.Me uses peer-to-peer vouching to build your reputation instead of algorithms to calculate influence.
